Azerbaijani minister: Elementary school admission procedures unchanged
Azerbaijan, Baku, July 5 / Trend T.Hajiyev /
Azerbaijani Education Minister Misir Mardanov said elementary school admission procedures have not been seriously amended.
"Some media outlets are misleading society by spreading untrue information," he said. The Admission procedures have not been seriously amended. As before, schools accept children over six. Admission procedures are held before Sept. 15."
Last week, local press reported that serious amendments have been made to elementary school admission procedures. According to some media outlets, students must first be interviewed by a commission established under the Education Ministry.
The ministry has created a committee of educators and psychologists, Mardanov said, but they will deal with admission procedures only at select schools for gifted children.
